Dal Timgar had always wanted to be a doctor. As a Garvian and the first non-human to study medicine on Hospital Earth, he must face enormous adversity from classmates, professors, and some of the highest ranking physicians on all of Earth. Will his efforts be enough to earn him the Silver Star of a Star Surgeon?

Subject: Engaging, inventive sci-fi story.
Unusual in sci-fi, this story isn't dated in the slightest. Creative premise, simple but fleshy characters- a very good story.

The narrator does a good job here, and gives the main characters different voices or accents. It's actually well done. I usually find vocal characterizations annoying and garbling. Not much to complain of here.

Subject: Enjoyed this story a lot
When you try to take a story with you the entire day, you know it's got your interest.

Earth of the future has become the pill pushers of the galaxy. Need medical help? If you have a contract, then Earth will send you a medical cruiser to help out. Dal is the first non-Terran to attempt to join the medical corp, and other Terrans don't want this. This is a story of how he overcomes this prejudiced while learning and having adventures as a star surgeon.

The recordings might be older but they sound great, and the reader did a very nice job. Thanks!

Subject: Excellent reading and story
Suitable children's story. A bit slow in spots for my 6 year old, but toward the end my wife and son forbid me to listen to the story without them. Quite enjoyable.

Subject: Star Surgeon
Dal Timgar's tests of tolerance and medical skills
make for as engaging a story now as it did thirty years ago. Mr. Farquhar's narration favorably colored the work.

Subject: Good read
Definitely a good, medium sized read. Well read..the reader asigned his voice variation adeptely to the different characters. The storyline isn't what one might expect and turns out to be quite enjoyable.
